What are you using to convert? If it's Area Editor, you should have posted under that forum.

Not sure why you need to convert. I thought SmaugWiz was close to Smaug as possible. I've never used this program either.

I know what you're talking about, but have only done the actual conversions the other way before, and then by hand until we got Samson to write a conversion snippet to do it for us on our smaugfuss based mud. Sorry, not much help, but at least you know someone out there understands the issue.

SmaugWiz area formats are not compatible with Smaug 1.4 or SmaugFUSS as is. If you're trying to make SmaugWiz areas work in Smaug, then as Conner says there is a snippet available to load them into SmaugFUSS. Otherwise the converter you're using now should do the job of converting a 1.4 area to SmaugWiz.

However, something to keep in mind. If you download a SmaugFUSS area, the SW converter will *NOT* work on those since the reset formats have changed.

I believe that, as I understand it, the problem is that he's using SmaugWiz and trying to convert Smaug areas to SmaugWiz format using the conversion utility that comes with SmaugWiz and seeking help from folks who don't use SmaugWiz because the support that Rusty does offer is only available via direct emails these days. Personally, I'd suggest that he seek help from Rusty directly, though I personally question the validity/wisdom of using SmaugWiz in the first place, let alone it's prepackaged area conversion utils (which I've never known to work properly).. but that may be opinion based.. as much as I shy away from cygwin myself, I think it's a far better solution for someone who's serious about running a mud than SmaugWiz, but I also, admittedly, have a bit of a jaded perspective on SmaugWiz in general.
